Geneva (dpa) - Millions of people worldwide suffer, according to the World Health Organization annually in medical treatments to harm. "Every minute, five people die because of incorrect treatment," said WHO boss Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. Some patients may get a wrong diagnosis or wrong medication.
